Box, The (2009) 
Bigger and better
3/4 stars

The Box is an extended episode of Twilight Zone with a mainstream budget, the extra cash making the weirdness seem all the more subversive. The story (based on a Richard Matheson tale) is a Faustian pact with buttons on, but that's just the starting point as it picks up Sartre and a heady dose of spiritualism along the way.

I thought it got lost a bit in the mid-section but it may just be that it was playing with your head and not giving too much thought to mundane concepts like exposition. Nice grading give the 70s setting authenticity, splendid costumes (brown was the new black then) and art direction, too. Good to see Richard Kelly back from the void, proving that Donnie Darko was no fluke.
